Won’t Make It To Third Base

| Romantic | November 16, 2013

(The Red Sox, my favorite baseball team, have just won the World Series against the Cardinals. My boyfriend, being from northern New Jersey, grew up liking the Yankees, who have a long-standing rivalry with the Red Sox.)

Me: “Red Sox won! Party!”

Boyfriend: “Party! Party!”

Me: “…did I seriously just see a Yankees fan cheering for the Red Sox?”

Boyfriend: “I’m sure I’ll snap out of it by lunchtime. The Cardinals aren’t the Yankees, though.”

Me: “They’re the closest team to your college, and they’re not arch-rivals of the Yankees.”

Boyfriend: “Hmm.”

Boyfriend: “BURN ALL RED SOX FANS! EXCEPT MY GIRLFRIEND, BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE VERY BAD.”
